    New Rules Effective Spring 2016 Relating to Heading and Concussion Management

    Eastchester Youth Soccer has adopted, effective with the spring season, the new US Soccer Federation Guidelines with respect to heading and injuries to the head. This applies across EYSA, for both the recreation and travel programs.
    Heading will be prohibited in all divisions U11 and younger. This includes all teams through and including our Silver Conference of the Upper Division of rec. When a player playing in one of these divisions heads the ball, the referee will stop play and award an indirect free kick to the opposing team from the spot where the heading took place. If the deliberate header by the defending team occurs inside the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the point nearest to where the heading infringement occurred.   Heading should similarly be prohibited in practice. In fact, heading should be limited in practice for u-12 and u-13 players (Gold Conference of our rec league).

    GAME MANAGEMENT WITH RESPECT TO HEAD INJURIES  Referees are required to immediately stop the game and remove the player for the balance of the game if they observe or otherwise become aware of a bump, blow or jolt to a player’s head or they become aware that a player is complaining about or is showing signs or reporting symptoms consistent with having suffered a concussion. Certified referees have already been trained to recognize the signs of head trauma. Although referees have been trained, we recognize that many are young teenagers. Coaches should never overrule the referee’s judgment.  For travel games, the referee should note, in his or her online report, any player so removed because of a suspected of a possible head injury, and retain that player’s pass and send it to the League office.

    Evaluations are Mandatory.  Evaluations are mandatory for existing travel players as well as any new players interested in the EYSA travel program.  While it is strongly recommended that players attend both evaluation sessions for their respective age group (so that our trainers can properly evaluate your child’s soccer skills), all players intending to play EYSA travel soccer next year must attend at least one evaluation session.

    Contact Information.  Please contact the following Travel Commissioners with any questions:  Girls Travel Commissioners – Tom Torre (tom.torre@novartis.com) and Ossie Martinez (oss24kva@hotmail.com); Boys Travel Commissioners – Mark Redman (mredman@hearst.com) and Sean Doherty (smichaeldoherty@optonline.net).

    For age group: born August 1 2004 through July 31, 2008.

    NYCFC vs. Red Bulls Outing

    Join your fellow club players and their families watching New York City Football Club at Yankee Stadium. This game is versus the New York Red Bulls, so it will be the biggest game of the season (In 2015 the attendance was 45,000). Last year’s spring outing attracted 200 EYSA members and their families and friends. The tickets are for section 202, 203 or 204. We will only pay $30.00 (plus non-EYSA handling fees).  NYC FC is playing with a 3pm kickoff on Saturday, May 21st. See link for more info on club and directions. http://www.nycfc.com/schedule.

    We will get the benefit of a club discount and seating together. This will be a fun afternoon for all the kids, their families and friends. All are welcome to sign up. The children will get to see some inspiring play in a great facility and hopefully come away after having a lot of fun and a new appreciation for the sport.  Click here to order
